THE COURTAULD Collects: 20 Years of Acquisitions

This display will explore some of the exceptional new additions to The Courtauld’s collection since it moved to Somerset House twenty years ago. Highlights include works ranging from Turner and Constable to Ingres, Degas and Seurat. The show will also unveil one the most important new acquisitions, Joshua Reynolds's late masterpiece Cupid and Psyche.  

 

The Courtauld Gallery is sometimes described as a ‘collection of collections’ and has grown historically through the generosity of private individuals who have endowed it with the remarkable collections which they formed.

 

This grand tradition of philanthropy, initiated at the Gallery by Samuel Courtauld in the 1930s, still survives and continues to extend and enhance The Courtauld Gallery’s world-famous collections.

 

The display will be an opportunity to celebrate and enjoy the achievements of the past twenty years and to look forward to the future development of the collections.
